TN each senior high school in the state
the National Society of the Daughters
of the American Revolution requests
the graduating class and the faculty to
name the Best Girl Citizen in the Class
of 1941. The candidate must possess the
following four qualities of character to
an outstanding degree — dependability,
service, leadership, and patriotism.
This honor has been awarded to
Dorothy Morton, who, ever since she
entered Plymouth High School, has
shown her classmates and teachers that
she is worthy of the title.
In her sophomore year she was pres-
ident of her home room, served on com-
mittees for the Double L Dance and
Sophomore Dance, and participated in
the P. H. S. — Capades. While a junior,
Dorothy was a member of the refresh-
ment committee and an usher for the
Junior Promenade, later serving as an
usher at the Graduation Exercises and
Senior Reception. This year, as a senior,
she has taken active part in the sale of
tuberculosis seals, worked on the com-
mittee for the Senior Dance, been a
Council Representative in the Student
Activities Society, and pianist for the
operetta "Martha" sponsored by the
Society. During her three years in high
school she has also played the piano at
assemblies, been literary editor for the
school annual, and participated in bas-
ketball, badminton, hockey, and bowl-
Always dependable, always a good
leader, she was our natural choice for
this honor. The entire school supports
the selection of Dorothy Morton as the
best girl citizen of the Class of 1941.
Ruth Boutin '41
No record here of things they^ve done;
We only seek to have some fun.
Though Alyice is a jolly girl,
Her temper is quick to flare,
Please be careful what you
Or you'll wish that you weren't
Want a poem recited?
Someone to sing or cheer?
For any of these duties
Arthur will volunteer.
She thought she was more
than pleasingly plump,
So she went upon a diet;
Now that the result has been
There are others who would
Her lightest word would be
With a new technique,
If she'd have her way with us,
She must let her 'cello speak.
Posters there, posters here!
She made them throughout all
In fact, her fingers flew so fast
They triumphed o'er her
tongue at last.
Don't be disarmed
By his gentle smile:
He can do battle
If he thinks it worth while.
Knowing she could not have
She considered many things —
Then fastened on her roller
To win hands down o'er her
She's forever busy
From eight o'clock to one,
Ask from her a favor —
And it's as good as done.
If someone versatile you'd
In studies bright, in football
Just send for "Mac", he's hard
First he pauses, then he shoots
From the middle of the floor;
He's made another basket
To bolster up our score.
There'll be shadow and sun for
As the years roll by,
But she'll meet whate'er may
With her head held high.
In school you rarely hear him,
He's the quietest of boys,
But wait until he gets out-
Then harken to the noise.
She studies in the morning:,
She studies throug-h the
Even if she tried to miss,
She'd answer questions right.
And auburn hair
Conspire to make
A lady fair.
The price of time and patience
She will gladly pay
Because she can be satisfied
With nothing less than A.
On the charge that she can't
The modern girl's indicted:
To show the falsity of this
Margaret's herewith cited.
She may not be in Hollywood,
But our Oscar she has won
For the nicest disposition
In the Class of '41.
At the game in Randolph
No one of us grieved
When some fourteen points
Our Peter achieved.
The best time in all the year?
Winter is his season — ■
Not that he's so rugged,
Basketball's the reason.
Brownie's full of mischief
In and out of school.
But "Lend a hand to others'
Has always been his rule.
She has need of a strong right
Not that she would fight —
It must support the pile of
That she carries home each
Chemistry or physics
He simply can't resist:
Can it be we harbor
An embryo scientist?
She'll cool your fever,
Soothe your brow —
That is, she will
When she's learned how.
Judging Charles by what he
And we're not sure we can,
The fairer sex must mend its
Or he'll live a single man.
If you desire a fine oration
Delivered with exuberation
We have some inside informa-
George excels in declamation.
"Benny" is industrious:
When school is over, then
She hustles off to go to work
In the "Five and Ten."
If ever you see Willie
Looking very blue,
It's safe to bet the New York
Have lost a game or two.
Though Clarence towers above
He's not the one to spurn the
Of friend in trouble or de-
Whene'er we need him, Cleevy's
She came from Arizona
To our stern and rock-bound
We hope that here she'll find
In life she prizes most.
If there are more patient girls,
We haven't met them yet —
As staff tvpist on The Pilgrim
She has placed us in her debt.
"Service brings its own re-
The copy books proclaim;
And if there's one boy who
Corrow is his name.
He plays third trumpet
In Morgardo's Band;
When he does a solo,
He gets a good hand.
Breaches in friendship
He can prevent
By using his father's
A penalty that's often paid
By clever girls like you
Is that others tend to give
You far too much to do.
Columbus found America
In fourteen ninety-two;
We're very glad he did this
So that we could welcome you.
We would pay tribute
To earnest endeavor —
She has worked faithfully,
TERESA DE TRANI
Teresa, we have found you
An artist through and through;
You've served us in so many
We've only praise for you.
He keeps his own counsel,
He goes his own way
Doing what must be done
Faithfully each day.
You play the piano
With such little ado
It's well there are studies
To challenge you.
We've been led astray
Bv ^hat people say:
She has the red hair
But bad temper's not there-
Wc'vc been led astrav.
We know that Latin IV you
Your excellence we couldn't
Until at last we solved the
Your old friend, Nero, played
Yesterday we knew the knight
Who wore her token on his
But now that a few hours have
He's vanquished from the field.
We think it matters little
Whether you're short or tall,
When your stature is not
Ycu don't have far to fall.
His inter*est in the feminine
Now extends to ships,
It's possible that - f 'The Sha-
Will the rest eclipse.
Net on Burns and Allen,
Net on Bergen's son —
We depend on one of our own
For the laughs in '41.
You said it took real energy
To keep up with '41 —
We're glad you didn't leave us
Before the race was run.
Quiet of manner,
Quiet of speech —
Ready to learn all
The textbooks can teach.
If she guarded her tongue
Like her "man" in a game,
We'd have it more quiet.
We hereby proclaim.
We've looked at him from time
And prayed hard — for we
We'd see him some fine morn-
Wearing; a full beard.
We wonder, what's in King-
That each night draws her
It couldn't be the ball game,
So it must be a ballplayer.
"So tight he kept his lips com-
Scarce any words came
Sorry, Harold, our mistake —
These lines are not for you.
She can't understand girls
Who're languid in gym,
To her it's the one place
To get excited in.
She can wield a stick
Or toss a ball,
Then write a column
About it all.
That he has a nose for news
No one of us can doubt;
In Mrs. Raymond's News Tests
He puts us all to rout.
Last June at Commencement
Pauline lost a friend,
But the loss proved one of
The passing of time could
His whistle and chatter
In Room 303
Are wont to disturb
Louis plays his trumpet well,
His orchestra leads with zeal —
If you're in a dancing mood,
His music will appeal.
While some girls forego sun-
For fear of gaining weight,
This is at least one sacrifice
She need not contemplate.
We harbor the suspicion
That she's not always quiet,
But we cannot picture her
As leader in a riot.
Tinkle! Tinkle! hear them fall
Gently as the rain —
In Mrs. Raymond's English
She picks up pearls again.
If you but hesitate, you're lost
When Johnnie Hammer you
To beat him to the door we've
But John is speed personified.
He seems to like our company;
But when all is said and done,
If he had to make a choice,
We'd lose to dog and gun.
Obese we fear
She'll never be —
Though she eats
Betty always bustles in
At one minute before eight:
She's hardly ever early.
Still — almost never late.
We know what your ambition
May you reach your goal;
Another Nightingale you'd be,
Revered from pole to pole.
First the squeal,
Then a wriggle;
We wait for the giggle.
She battled shamelessly with
To get these poems done;
But before you lies the proof
That her tactics won.
This girl has
A favorite song — -
She warbles "Sylvia"
All day long.
From her no hysterical giggle,
No piteous moan or groan —
She will not condone.
If on Major Bowes' hour
You should sing a song,
With that lovely voice of yours
You'd never get the gong.
In truth it can be said of her
She works as hard as she
We're conscious of her pres-
In numerous pleasant ways.
No one could dress hurriedly
And look so very right,
She must plan what clothes
Before she rests at night.
Her heart's desire
She should attain
Because she tries,
Then tries again.
You made for us a leader fine,
As president you toed the
But, if that job had not existed,
As super salesman you'd be
WELDON La VOIE
For choosing clothes and wear-
Weldon has a flair,
He can tell you, if he will,
What the well-dressed man
Salvos of laughter,
An exchange of jokes —
Beware of Martha's
We'd like to see you do it
Just to prove it can be done;
Approach the school with
And not upon the run.
He is no melancholy Dane —
He quiet agrees with Brown-
At the problems of the day
There is no sense in frowning.
He's drummer boy of '41!
With a Krupa composition
And all the practicing he's
He should give competition.
Teeth like gleaming peai'ls,
Hair like raven's wings —
Though the similes are trite,
She has both these things.
He conserves his energies
Until the recess bell,
For then he has a thing to do
That he must do well.
The story's written "on his face
For all who care to read;
He's glad to lend a helping
Wherever there is need.
We've examined her by X-ray:
We report that we can't find
A single lazy particle
In body or in mind.
Through our trackless corri-
He ranges far and wide:
We haven't yet seen Silver,
But Bill Po's at his side.
When we interviewed this
He didn't mind confessing
There's little in this life of
That he finds too depressing.
On sober second thought we
We should have let him act
As our class photographer —
We've shown a lack of tact.
People like us appreciate
A person just like you,
We hereby publicly proclaim
We think that you're true blue.
I I I : I in
Our Warren's not particular,
But one thing makes him sad —
It's when the boys forget the
And call him "Fat"! Egad!
She may creak and she may
But she condescends to start —
Though she is no gay young
She has captured Wesley's
May the years be powerless
Her smile to erase;
For we have found joy
In her radiant face.
The girls all envy
In their opinion
She dribbles down the hockey
With a look of concentration,
Her name heads the Honor
We admire determination.
He once was "Casanova Don"
With sweethearts by the scores,
But then the right girl came
And now he's scrubbing floors!
Writing notes in study hall
Is Alba's specialty;
She'll pass one any time she
The teacher cannot see.
She does not choose the easy
Let the weak and weary ride —
To her work and back again
She walks with vigorous stride.
Christmas spirit was in the air,
Christmas bells were in her
Since the season now is gone.
Colored bows her locks adorn.
He has a repertoire of jokes
The glum heart to delight,
He is just the person
To make a dark day bright.
We don't think our Mary con-
In fact, she always has been
Very willing to tell us the
And it costs us never a pin.
When the girls stroll out for
You're always with the rest —
You surprised your coach and
You rate — one of the best.
You can wield a pen or pencil
And produce a likeness true,
The ease with which you do it
Makes us envious of you.
<~l Plymouth girls,
How we do sing
And praise the work
Of our "right wing"!
A tisket. a tasket
She made another basket,
When Nancy wears that naive
We expect again to win.
Though you search the class
from A to Z,
We think you won't find one
Who'll stick more closely to a
Until it is well done.
We've seen him in the class-
We've seen him on the street —
And from our observations
His style is hard to beat.
"Naomi, be still
For once and for all" —
This sounds familiar
In our study hall.
He helps prepare his class-
For a detail test
By asking all the questions
He thinks will serve them best.
Stan's an unassuming chap
Who studies hard, 'tis true,
But with that sober air there is
A touch of humor, too.
We've lived through many
In our high school days,
But the brightness of her smile
Has been with us always.
When her children go to school
And laugh and shout and sing,
We only hope she won't forget
She did the selfsame thing.
"Be bright and cheerful,"
That's her creed —
Live up to her motto
If you would succeed.
When a poet speaks of wom-
As her crowning glory,
He can have but one in mind
As the subject of his story.
Betty, you think, is very shy
Until you know her well —
Then you'll find she's lots of
As all her friends can tell.
"Wrangler" bought a Pontiac,
His one and only love —
Don't you dare to touch that
If you haven't on a glove.
Some think her sedate,
But we wouldn't know why-
For she has a greeting
For each passerby.
Rushing here, dashing there,
Through the corridors she'll
Wait a minute! This won't fit!
Barbara's just the opposite.
The leopard may not change
But he does something like it —
To recognize this boy at 1:00
The observer must be psychic.
She takes time to be pleasant,
And that pays dividends —
For now she's added all of us
To her host of friends.
On the absentee sheet
We predict without fear
At least once a week
His name will appear.
Our faith in him is justified:
We thought he had the power
To part us from our money
Without our feeling dour.
She's a fugitive from History
It's hot upon her trail,
The thought of being captured
Makes Marie turn pale.
When school is done,
For home she'll run
To don her slacks —
She must relax.
We seldom see her talking,
She seems to us most shy —
She concentrates on other
Report cards do not lie.
She's simple and sweet
And tres, tres petite;
To her Stewart's acting
Is life's greatest treat.
Her vigilance is eternal,
Her eye is keen and clear —
While she's serving as libra-
No book will disappear.
Seated each day at her type-
She merrily taps the keys
And accomplishes her purpose
With comparative grace and
All that you do
We may not condone,
But we have only praise
When you play the trombone.
She thinks more of landscapes
Than many seniors do,
In fact, she stands on Prospect
Just to enjoy the view.
We cover our eyes
So we don't have to look
At Dean in an apron
Ready to cook.
In basketball, football,
And baseball, too,
The honor of good sport
Goes straight to you.
To our success at sleuthing
We do not point with pride,
For he must have at least one
That cannot be denied.
Riotous colors in sweaters
Make her senses reel —
For her only the pastels
Have the least appeal.
We'll lift the lid on one thing
And let you take a peek:
If you would meet a charming
You need no further seek.
She bowled a score of ninety,
And sighed with great relief—
The second string was lower,
Her victory was brief.
Very politely we asked her to
since — •
"Practice Makes Perfect" was
our first choice:
Very politely Alice replied,
"I subscribe to the title— but
haven't the voice."
The Carver road
Needs much repair:
But even the old one
Will get you there.
He has a sense of humor rare,
Of that we're very well a-
Don't think his hearty laughs
A very funny joke's been told.
When she really hits her
She can talk at such a rate
We feel the need of a machine
Her speed to calculate.
The Muse of Poetry and Song
Might well have been her
Today she can provide us
With music or with verse.
Time after time
We knock them down,
But you set them up
Without a frown.
Stockings and sweaters
So quickly go!
Barbie's a knit-wit;
That we all know!
At a game or movie
She has a stature such
That, unlike her midget sisters.
She's not bothered much.
"Kathleen is a twin!" we say,
And skeptical looks we bear —
For all they have in common
Is the color of their hair.
We can safely
Trust her tongue:
In the middle
It is not hung.
NORMA JEAN WHITE
School is no place of wrath and
But a place to work —
And this obligation
She's not inclined to shirk.
As soothing as a gentle rain,
As sweet as budding flower —
With her disposition
She needs no other dower.
She makes herself useful
In more ways than one,
And she handles assignments
As if they were fun.
At the risk of seeming greedy
We wish that we possessed
A hundredth part of all the
We've paid at his behest.
If Hedy Lamarr is your ideal,
You needn't take it so hard:
For here we've found her
Right in our own backyard.
We have a milkman in our
His product's of the best —
Were he himself inspected,
"Rick", too, would pass the
Our attempts at reformation
Have left us quite forlorn:
The load of conversation
By others must be borne.
A fleeting smile,
A friendly eye —
A modest miss
Is passing by.
THE CROSSROADS OF LIFE
As we start upon our journey
At the crossroads of our life,
Some may fail and others conquer-
In the stress of earthly strife.
In our lives let's live with kindness,
Acts of love will calm our fears —
What we sow in life's bright
We shall reap in later years.
At the portals of the future
We now stand in silence awed —
All our cherished hopes' fidfillment
Rests within the palm of God.
Let us live that each tomorrow
Find our race with courage
When we pass to realms of glory,
May the greeting be "Well

CLASS HISTORY MADE EASY
SFPT OCT. NOV DEC JAN. FPB MAR. APR. HAY JUNE
THE PRINCIPAL SPEAKS
TN this space last year I wrote about
courage, the quality which guaran-
tees other traits of character, the quality
without which other traits, no .matter
how admirable in themselves, may be-
come mere parodies of themselves. Let
me repeat what I said then that you
may understand more clearly what I
have in mind.
"Without courage tact may be no
more than cowardice; forbearance,
weakness; generosity, a covert form of
bribery. And strength without courage
may become mere contemptible bully-
The happenings of the past year have
underscored those words in such a way
that I want to write for this graduating
class about another quality so closely
related to courage that it is difficult to
distinguish the one from the other.
In some respects this quality may be
considered the very heart of courage
itself. It is difficult to conceive of cour-
age (except as physical bravery) with-
out assuming the existence of this other
quality as a prerequisite. However, to
separate this quality from courage
(even if it can be done satisfactorily) is
not necessary to an understanding of
its importance or an appreciation of its
fundamental worth in the human make-
up. After all, it may be the twin of
courage, the other face of courage.
speak of self-reliance.
Self-reliance emphasizes the alone-
ness underlying all human existence.
Bound as we are by ties of family,
affection, and loyalty to so many of our
fellow-beings, yet, ultimately, in all the
great crises of our lives, we must be
ready to act alone. This is not to say
that these ties should in any respect be
belittled, They are the great comforts,
the supports which all men seek ; but they
come from without, and character is
built from within. When a man makes
a decision, that decision must be his —
else it is no decision at all ; it is no more
than a concealed wavering hiding be-
hind the advice and decisions of others,
a masquerade. And that leads to the
abnegation of all traits that go to make
sound character, for it is the denial of
a man's responsibility to himself for
his own acts.
Consider Greece, as last year we con-
sidered Finland. Faced by a well-armed
and well-equipped aggressor, remote
from help, poor in natural resources,
she might well have temporized as have
her neighbors to the north, and called
that course one of prudence, caution,
necessity. Fine words can be found to
camouflage this kind of spineless sur-
render. But this ancient people remem-

[TH a hiss of flying spray, the sleek
^Tittle schooner "Pindar" boomed
over the blue water before a stiff south-
easter. To the westward scarcely a mile
away, the high, rounded outline of an
island stood silhouetted in the rays of
the setting sun. The white strip of beach
shadowed by a fringe of tall palms that
lined the shore, the dark green of
bushes that ran to the top of a steep
hill, the surf breaking on the reef that
surrounded Sexton's Bay were plainly
Clint Davis squatted on the deck, his
back against the cabin side, splicing a
rope with a marlinspike dangling from
his wrist. He glanced ahead as his
vessel approached the bay. The tide
was still flooding, coming in strong.
Astern, a thick bank of thunderheads
was piling up in the east. There would
be a squall on the turn of the tide to-
night, he was certain. It was dangerous
for a sailing vessel to be caught in the
narrow reaches of Sexton's Pass by a
It had been several years since his
last visit here. He glanced toward the
top of Sexton's Hill. It seemed as
though a small space on the crest had
been cleared of bushes. He gazed in-
tently at the bald spot above. He
fancied he saw a figure move up there,
but, before he could make sure, the
movement of the boat brought a clump
of palms between him and the hilltop.
The man aft was steering. He stood
up, the better to see ahead, pulling his
hat down to shade his eyes. A heavy
hand was needed now. If a ship struck
on the edge of the pass, it wouldn't last
long. The "Pindar" crossed the bar.
Down the center of the channel the
white schooner rolled and swung while
the Mue-green rocks showed above the
surface less than a cable's length away.
The channel turned to the right and
The "Pindar" followed the blue water
of the passage. The little basin, entered
through the narrow cut, was secure
haven even during a hurricane. The
schooner cleared the entrance and
swung up to the north. The sails flut-
tered as the wind left them, and the
crew of three ably took them in.
Clint Davis quickly tucked his knife
back into the sheath on his belt. His
eyes streaked along the cliff a foot
above the surface of the water. The
high tide mark showed plainly. He
raised his head above the level of the
cabintop. In the little gap between the
main boom he saw it. A long, black hull
was moored right in the center of the
pond, a black sinister shape, low lying,
with the slim muzzle of a gun pointed
directly at them. Behind that gun stood
At the sight Clint Davis crouched
and sprang overboard. The water
closed over him, cutting off his yell of
warning. So quickly had he moved that
the iron marlinspike was still fastened
around his waist. His crew was frozen
to immovability. There came a loud,
earspliting crash and "The Pindar" dis-
integrated in the din which followed.
The explosion of the five-inch shell was
so terrific that the dory trailing astern
flew up into the air and burst into
splinters before it hit the water.
Clint Davis was deep under water
when the concussion occurred, and it
drove the air from his lungs. He came
up fast, caught his breath, and instinc-
tively dived again as pieces of plank,
rope, and timber showered the spot he
had just left. He swam underwater to
the beach opposite the position of the
The long shadows of the setting sun
slowly spread over the pond. With the
sunset the wind died down. A hush fell,
broken only by the low murmur from
out on the reef.
Clint Davis watched a small boat
with half a dozen men in it put out from
the island. He hefted the marlinspike
and felt his sheath knife. If they found
him, he'd put up a good fight. Evidently
the crew in the small boat was convinc-
ed that there were no survivors, for
they went back to shore.
Clint tried to understand this thing
that had come upon him so suddenly.
The lookout on the bared hilltop had
Seen them entering the bay and had
been ready for them.
This must be a secret submarine base
where the raiders went ashore to rest
between attacks. They could not have
found a better hideout. The hilltop
formed an excellent lookout. They used
swift annihilation to keep their hideout
a secret. "Dead men tell no tales," he
Davis worked his way up from under
the rocks. The damp, cool scent of rain
was in the ar. On the other side of the
pond in the light of a campfire he could
see shadows of many men.
A thin drizzle started to fall. He
might be able to slip along the shore
and escape in the small boat. But then
he remembered his crew and his fine
schooner at the bottom of Sexton's Bay.
A cold rage swept over him. They had
sunk his ship without warning and with-
out giving anyone a fighting chance.
He must, if possible, rid these waters
of the black, sinister shape. But how?
On board their vessel the raiders
were supreme, but in Sexton's Pond
Glint Davis was in his own environ-
ment. He was swimming with scarcely
a ripple to betray his progress, swim-
ming out to the spot where the black
shadow lay over the gray surface of
Even while he floated alongside, the
rain had become a heavy downpour.
Cautiously he worked his way along.
Amidships near the conning tower he
discerned the blurred figure of the
watchman huddled against the tower.
As silently as the fall of a feather, he
was upon the deck and no more than
four feet from the figure. His arm
swung in a swift, short arc and the
marlinspike landed on the man's skull
with a sickening thud. He slid silently
into the water. That one would give
him no trouble.
He felt for the anchor chain and slid
down it until he came to the bottom.
For a whole two minutes he worked on
the shackle which held the last link
to the huge anchor. Using his knife, he
pried out the shackle pin and the anchor
was loose. He floated upward.
When he reached the top, he found
the tide turning and the submarine
drifting out the passage ! Tideborne,
faster and faster it moved, dragging its
useless anchor chain over the white
coral on the bottom. He swam ashore
and hid in the bushes close to the camp-
A rifle shot barked from the hilltop,
and the men around the fire ran up to
discover that they were stranded and
their only means of escape was rapidly
drifting toward the jagged reef.
A grim smile of satisfaction crossed
Clint Davis' face. The submarine had
struck the reef at high water. Each
tide would come lower and lower from
now on. The reef held the vessel in its
grip, and the monstrous waves were
pounding it furiously. Each surge was
lifting it higher upon the rocks. The
rock formation opened large gaps in her
He stole the dinghy from beside the
campfire and was far from land before
he was discovered. He sat down on the
stern of the little boat and listened to
the steady, dull roar of the reef as each
mighty wave rose and fell upon the
quiet of the night. He could hear still
another sound beat above the roar of
the sea — the sound of steel against the
jagged rocks of the reef. They had
destroyed his ship. The score was even.
Their vessel was on the reef to stay.
Clint Davis began to row. It was a
long stretch to the settlement and the
wireless station nearest Sexton's Bay.

WHAT PRICE LIBERTY?
Ye who sit by the fireside,
Come on a trip with me —
A thoughtful trip,
A mournful trip,
A trip far over the sea.
Ye who sit by the fireside,
Pause a moment to hear
The booming: guns,
The chattering: g;uns,
The g:uns of death and fear.
Ye who sit by the fireside,
Close your eves and see
The flowing; blood.
The crimson blood,
The blood of you or me.
Ye who sit by the fireside,
Feel in your hearts with me
The deepening: love.
The lasting: love,
The love of liberty.
Clarence Cleveland '41
Some spend a fortune to enhance
Their gardens with rare and exquisite plants
Bedecked with rocks and trailing vines;
Some like a garden whose design
Conforms to geometric line,
Where brilliant phlox and asters cross
Trim beds of pinks and columbine.
But all of these will fail to match
The glory of a random patch of hollyhocks.
Pauline Freyermuth '41
THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP
There's a shop around the corner,
Quaintest one I've ever seen;
As you enter there's the owner
Standing where he's always been.
This shop is not an ordinary
Store with knicks and knacks;
Each piece has its history
Based on well-known facts.
Bottles, pictures, guns, and plates,
To name a very few;
From more than one New England state
And from old England, too.
But this is all in retrospect,
Our shop has long since gone;
Quaint owner, too, has passed away
But our memories live on.
Errington Brown '41
THE KIDDIES' HOUR
"Between the dark and the daylight,
When the light is beginning to lower,
Comes a pause in the day's occupation
Which is known as the Children's Hour."
TN Longfellow's era the Children's
Hour was that sixty minutes of de-
lightful peace and quiet which brought
parents and children together at the end
of a long, long day. But that age, an age
when parents read the time-fingered
volumes of Aesop, Andersen, and Grimm
to youthful, enraptured listeners, has
given way to the present-day hour of
The radio, employing a death-defying,
two-fisted wonder -man, now gives us a
new form of "grim" amusement, one
which could break any bond that ever
existed between parent and child. If, by
chance, you are not yet acquainted with
the modern version of the above-men-
tioned eventide festivity, let us look in
on the average family at about a quarter
Father, weary from a hard day's toil,
has just settled himself in his favorite
easy-chair. Mother, too, is tired ; never-
theless she's preparing supper with a
smile. Junior, that little ray of sun-
shine, has taken his nightly position be-
fore the radio, seated on Father's fa-
Why, you may ask, has the little cher-
ub chosen this uncomfortable seat when
the sofa is unoccupied? Soon, all too
soon, you shall know the answer, for
even now the clock strikes five. Father
squirms lower into his chair and sets
his teeth ; mother quietly closes the door
: into the kitchen, and Junior, tense with
expectancy, leans toward the radio.
Suddenly the scream of police sirens
and the roar of gunfire herald the begin-
ning of the "Kiddies' Hour." Father,
completely unnerved, leaps from his
chair, and above the din shouts, "Ye
Gods, Mabel, do we have to endure this
torture again tonight?"
Mother does not reply. Again father
pleads and again there is no reply. Now
the noise has become a bedlam and
father, taking matters into his own
hands, advances menacingly toward his
son. The lad looks for aid in the direc-
tion of the kitchen, for father, with an
evil gleam in his eye, is but a few feet
away. A sharp reprimand from mother
halts father in his tracks and saves
Junior from eating his evening meal
from the mantle. "Be reasonable,
Mabel," father pleads. "Nonsense, you
were young — once," says mother.
Completely disgusted, father storms
from the room, dons his coat, and, cram-
ming his hat over his ears, leaves for
the garage where he can read in peace.
Junior, apparently unmoved by the
evening's happenings, listens in com-
plete rapture while his hero fearlessly
upholds the forces of law and order.

"You know, Jay, we lead a hard life."
"Yes, work, work, work, and more
work, always dangling on a strap
around master's neck."
"He's always banging me around, and
focussing means twisting my nose. Some
day, Jay, I will refuse to open my eye."
"What makes me angry, Jack, is the
way he opens my eye en a beautiful
landscape and shuts it before I can
absorb the beauty."
"Yes, and when I am forced to view
a corpulent, homely, woman, he tor-
tures me by leaving my eye open. Then
she criticizes for not making a good
picture! I'm not a magician!"
"Poor me, master is always opening
my head and putting in a new brain or
pulling out a used one."

^H Y doesn't that teacher hurry ? He's
probably glad that I'm getting a
deficiency slip, but I'll do better next
time. Yeah, that's what I said the last
time, but now I mean it! Gee, I really
meant it last time, but that resolution
went the way of all resolutions when
pals come to call. I should have known
better than to think I could make up
everything in one test.
Look at him! He's three rows away
now ! If I don't get a deficiency slip this
time, I'll study two hours every night.
Oh, what's the use of kidding myself? I
said that the first time I was threatened
with one of those unpleasant reminders,
but here I am waiting for another.
What shall I tell my father, a stickler
for excellent grades? My three C's last
month didn't improve our relationship
I'll consult some of the boys as to
what I should say. No, they'll laugh. I
know what I'll do — I'll leave the slip
on the hall ta'ble, for anything that I'll
say will only make the situation worse.
I was a fool, but what's the use now?
Look at those smug teacher's pets
over there, the "brainy" boys, the ones
who never have to worry. I'm every bit
as intelligent as they are. No — no, I
can't be, for they know when to study
and I'm sitting here wishing that I had
studied. Funny thing — I always know
what I should have done but never know
what I should do.
He's coming up the aisle now. He
seems to enjoy giving out those little .
tokens and making little speeches. I bet
he beats his wife. Four more boys, three
now, two. Gosh ! 'he's talking to Brown
in front of me. He's standing over me
now ! I won't encourage him to speak to
me. No, sir! I'll look at my book and
pretend I'm studying ! Well, why doesn't
he put it down? Why is he prolonging
Heavens ! he's passed me !
Gladys Cohen '43
Outside I hear the dashing rain
Full force against the windowpane;
On such a day with fire aglow,
An easy chair, a book or so,
To sit and munch an apple red,
And now and then to nod my head;
What more is there for me to say?
Content am I this rainy day.
Rosa Bradley '41
J-JAVE you ever heard one person
sneeze and then heard another re-
mark, "God bless you"? This expres-
sion has come down through the ages.
In the ancient days it was believed that
the reason a woman was beautiful was
because she had been born at the very
moment that Venus sneezed. Socrates
was careful to watch the side to which
he sneezed. He believed that to sneeze
to the right was good luck, and that
any proposition undertaken afterward
would turn out in the sneezer's favor.
Sneezing to the left meant bad luck.
There are countries today that have
superstitions on sneezing. In Germany,
for a married man to wake up and
sneeze means that he will be bossed by
his wife for one week. This can be
warded off by going back to bed and
staying there for three hours. If a
person sneezes in Scotland, he is not
an idiot because the Scots believe that
an idiot does not have the power to
sneeze. Sneezing at a Hindu sacra-
mental rite means that the ceremony
has to be begun over again. The Chinese
believe that it is bad luck to sneeze on
a Chinese New Year. In Japan, the
number of times one sneezes has sig-
nificance. To sneeze once means some-
one is praising you, to sneeze twice
means that an enemy is slandering you,
and to sneeze three times means you're
getting a cold. The last is perhaps the
most dependable forecast.

The Ship of State sails out to sea
While anxious hearts await on shore —
Can she return to land still free,
Or is she lost forevermore?

The ship ploughs bravely toward her foe:
Will she fall prey to hostile force
Or conquer? Only God can know.

Kind Morpheus his cloak has flung
O'er weary land and sea.
The stars are twinkling in the sky,
The moon's sweet, soft, and silver face
Is smiling tenderly.
The waves along the shining shores
Are sighing, "Sleep, sweet sleep;"
And through the dark the night birds call —
So silent is the world that lies
In slumber soft and deep.
Jeanette Franks '4?
Blushes, a grin,
Voice that goes thin;
Feet hard to guide,
Hands meant to hide.
Shuffled down heels,
Mind off in space;
Eating all meals
At breathtaking pace.
Mischief, not sin,
Quick taking a dare.
Pausing to glance,
Baggy brown pants;
Always says "nerts."
Dressed now so neatly,
Years bring conceit;
His large hands and feet.

CALL TO ADVENTURE
I've wandered along life's winding trail
Until now I am seventeen,
But as yet I have seen or done nothing great
Aside from life's daily routine.
But before I die I have planned in my mind
The things I shall want to do,
To visit the places which few men have seen
And learn why some things are true.
The wish that is first in my mind it to find
Where the rainbow touches this earth,
And there I shall meet with that famed pot
To return to find what it's worth.
My next request is an adventurous trip
That takes me down under the sea,
To find all the treasure which pirates have
And carry it back home with me.
Finally I wish to be able to see
This great world one hundred years hence,
With the hustle and roar of wide city streets
Brought close to my own backyard fence.

FEMALES + FIRE
PVERY year there comes a time when
the garden rubbish, your rubbish,
and the neighbor's rubbish, which very
accidentally clutters up your yard, must
be disposed of by the well-known pro-
cess of rapid oxidation. It is generally
preferred by the fire department and
the insurance company that a man burn
the rubbish, as a woman with a long-
handled rake and three or four lucifers
is more dangerous than a leaky water
pipe in the cellar.
Unfortunately there are many "fem-
inine firebugs" who have yet to learn of
the delicate composition of a burning
heap, and one of the chief offenders is
Mrs. Twerp, my next-door neighbor. If
she can find no old rubbers to be dis-
posed of, she will certainly pick up a
piece of old oilcloth, which makes a very
good substitute, especially if an unpleas-
ant odor is desired. There is, of course,
nothing that emits such an offensive
smell except hair, but hair being rare in
backyards, we must acknowledge that
a piece of old oilcloth about three feet
or more in length, subjected to a slow
flame, can be detected by the most
ordinary nose even at a distance of four
What rubbish Mrs. Twerp does ac-
cumulate in one corner of her cabbage
patch scarcely compensates for the dam-
age to herself, the rake, and Oscar

long before taking a flying leap over the

assistance from outside to come to them.
They made their decision and acted up-
on it, and, though help has come to them
since, the glory of their resistance is
that they made it themselves; they re-
lied upon their own strength.
Success in a military sense has so far
crowned their efforts ; they have pushed
back the invader and have penetrated
his territory. But ominous doings in the
Balkans foreshadow the day of disaster
when valiant Greece may have to feel
the heel of the conqueror. May that
day never come, but, should it come,
posterity will say of this Greek nation
what history tells us was graven in the
rocky walls of Thermopylae over the
bodies of Leonidas and his Spartans:
"Stranger, go tell our people that we lie
here in obedience to their laws."
Now, we are "their people" as are all
liberty-loving, self-reliant men, and the
"laws" are those of decent right-conduct
expected of all citizens in a free nation.
May we, with their example before us,
be as steadily and sturdily self-reliant
in our defense of all that is right.

TOO MUCH GOING ON
There's too much going on at once
In this old world of ours —
So many things for us to do
In few and fleeting hours.
We have no time to meditate,
We make plans as we go,
And what we'll do week after next
We never, never know.
A hair-do here, then movies there,
And dinner is at six,
And we must be on time for all —
This living has its "tricks."
From school we dash home for our lunch
And down town then rush we,
To talk and shop and hurry off
To somewhere else at three.
Our supper's through by seven-ten;
Our homework' s done by eight,
And someone's car is at the door —
Ah, yes — another date!
We live from day to day, 'tis true,
We go from sun to sun;
We know there's too much going on,
But oh! It's so much fun!
Jeanette Franks '42
THE IRON MONSTER
I, by rights should be in bed.
Ere I rest my weary head,
Iron Monster must be fed.
Down two flights of stairs I go,
Ducking rafters that are low,
Kicking railings with my toe.
There he sits before my eyes,
Glutton of gargantuan size,
Empty, not to my surprise.
"Here," he roars in rasping tone,
"Here I sit and hungry groan. —
Feed me here upon my throne!"
Shovel, shovel, dust and trouble,
Bended back that's almost double
With my labor midst the rubble.
Iron Monster, god of greed,
I'll no more to cellar speed,
On crude oil you now must feed.
Walter Corrow '41
RULER OF THE SEA
Sweeping ever onward
With thunderous, furious roar,
Mountains of frothy madness
Crash on the wreck-strewn shore.
Until Father Neptune
Deigns to calm the raging deep,
These crushing monsters will continue
To pit their cunning and strength
Against the courageous men
Who have fearlessly striven
To conquer the bitter, mysterious sea.
Edward Penn '43
With cheerless heart I watched the sun
As it came up to greet the day,
And the shadows of the night just passed
Lingered a while, then blew away.
Then all the birds began to sing,
And all the flowers burst into bloom,
And heaven smiled at her handiwork-
There ivas no place for tears and gloom.
And as I stood alone and sad,
A ray of hope gleamed from the sod:
My heart leaped up! I caught the gleam —
Then raised my head and thanked the Lord.
Mary Capozucca '43
On a fence post
Sits a robin
Pert and happy —
With his secret
Of coming spring.

The mist is like a silvery veil
Dropped o'er steeple tops
Where it hovers, floating languidly —
Then gradually, it fades away
As if a hand were reaching down
To gently lift it up.
Betty Hart '43
These things would I hold to be,
Above all else, most dear to me:
Pussy willows — silky, silver-gray
Swaying in the breeze along the woodland
Walks along a forest path
Rather than the fireside hearth;
The pungent tang of crisp, brisk air
All around me everywhere ;
The frosty twinkle of a star
Glistening brightly from afar;
The broad expanse of virgin snow
Sparkling in the moonlight glow.
The peace that follows quiet sleep
That has been restful, calm, and deep;
These things would I hold to be,
Above all else, most dear to me.
Shirley Hanson '43
Never be too busy to gaze at sea-blue skies,
To watch the sun stream on its way to seek
To mark the shadows of the dark 071 velvet
feet creep down,
To see the stars, which one by one, light
streets of Heaven-town.
Never be too busy to see life's flowers sweet,
The kinds that bloom in gardens, and the
others at our feet,
The joy of books, of friends, and talk, the
love of children dear —
The charm of all the lovely things that noiv
surround us here.
Never be too busy to see beauty everywhere,
And know that He Who loves us all has
made this ivorld most fair.
Mary Bonzagni '43
TWILIGHT AT SEA
The twilight hours like birds flew by
As gently and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten thousand on the sea —
For every wave with dimpled face
That leaped into the air
Had caught a star in its embrace
And held it, trembling, there.
Barbara Standish S'herman '43
Gazing into the fire I see
Little flames of memory,
P easant dreams of days gone past,
Never, never meant to last —
Seeds of reminiscence sown
Into mem'ries dear are grown;
They fill my heart with ecstasy,
These little flames of memory.
Helen Sherman '43
Roguish rain —
Seeking out the backward plants, kissing
Making those bashful bulbs blush into
Happy sun —
Caressing the new-born shoots as they
Their tender leaves up into this land of
light and life.
Playful winds —
Frolicking amongst the goblet tulips that
hold their cupped hands toward the sky,
Causing them to sway with the easy
rhythm of the ballet.
Barbara Jones '43
BEFORE I DIE
I want to hear before I die
From a host of angels in the sky
Those treasured words men seek in vain,
"All is well — peace rules again."
I want to see before I die
That hallowed shrine where patriots lie,
Where they who stemmed the battle's tide
Now rest in state, our country's pride.
I want to know before I die
Why men grow pale as years go by,
And if there is a Shangri-La
Beyond the last horizon far.
I want to stand before I die
And look the whole world in the eye,
Then turn with mind and conscience clear
To face my God without a fear.
Richard Kearsley '43
They glide through the air
With the greatest of ease,
Those daring white creatures
That live by the seas.
They soar to the clouds
To a measureless height,
Cruising among them
Until out of sight.
Then swerving about
They pause to hover,
Then plummet towards water
One after another.
They hit with a splash
In search of their prey,
Then, bobbing like corks,
They drift on their way.

Our Christmas tree no longer gleams
With brightly-colored stars and lights.
We packed the trimmings for next year,
But still, we kept the tree just near
The house, so we could all look out
And see it there, quite cold, without
Its branches, laden, shining bright
With tinsel and a star. One night,
However, after a day's storm,
When the eaiiji seemed to change its form
And I looked out through the moonlight glare,
I saw our tree, still standing there,
Its branches once more hanging low,
Redecorated by the snow.
Mary Marvelli '41
While gazing from my window's height,
I see the frozen harbor's shore.
And high above the sandy bar,
White seagulls swoop, then rise and soar.
Beyond the bar the white crests rise,
Made high by last night's boisterous storm,
From depths of sapphire blue they roll,
A magic change of hue to form.
Across the brown of winter's marsh,
The distant roar is borne to me —
I long for summer's bright green shades
And sails, instead of icy sea!
Barbara Viets '41
How often have I heard the wind
When I am all alone,
Puffing past my windowpane
With wailing, doleful tone.
It seeks out each secluded nook
While blowing through the lane,
And then, once more, around the house
It whistles a refrain.
Sometimes it plays a softer tune
And gathers up each breeze.
Then, in a muffled whisper,
It vibrates through the trees.
It lingers in the tall, brown grass,
The bushes, and the brush —
And then moves on to other haunts
With a reluctant hush.
How often, when I listen,
I've heard the wind at play —
And hoped that it would hasten
To me, another day).
Elenore Hall '41
I love these frosty mornings
When all the outer air
Is tingling with a freshness
And vim beyond compare.
The cold wind in the tree-tops
Proclaims the coming dawn,
And sends the leaves a-rushing
Across the frozen lawn.
The light glows in my window,
And on the pane I see
Jack Frost has sketched a picture
Of a silvery tree.
I love these frosty mornings
To see these things, and then
To draw my bed-clothes closer
And go to sleep again.
Nancy Reagan '41
As I recall the many years I've risen
And bathed and brushed my teeth
and combed and dressed.
How many years within these different schools
I've tried and toiled, how many years
For all these recollections, I thank thee, Lord!
Please never let me rest —
Until I've reached that peace that comes
In toiling for the best.
Mary Creati '41
Happiness is a transient thing,
A variegated balloon on a string
Suspended in the air to tantalize
Each soul that hopelessly tries
To grasp its bounded ecstasy.
Eventually it bursts, and we
In retrospect then treasure
Its momentary pleasure.

ON TIRELESS WINGS
On tireless wings the wild bird speeds his
To lands which he has often sought before:
On t ever on, untiring, day and night,
Unceasing, ever toward that distant shore
Where lies his shelter from the cold wind's
Strong is the hope that leads him through the
And true the sense that guides him evermore,
As on toward that alluring realm he flies
Where winter is like spring, for there his

Les personnages: Julie et Renaud
La premiere scene : C'est le salon fab-
uleux d'un bateau a vapeur. Tous les
fauteuils sont verts comme la mer au-
dela des fenetres, petites et rondes. Le
tapis meme est vert.
Ici il y a beaucoup de monde, et tous
parlent de ce nouveau bateau et com-
ment il est comme un grand hotel. Tout
le monde semble heureux. Quelques-uns
sont des hommes d'affaires. D'autres
voyagent pour leur plaisir. II y a des
criminels, des membres du clerge, des
riches, de nouveaux-maries.
Quand le rideau se leve, nous voyons
deux de ces derniers. Julie, petite et
seduisante, a, a peu pres, vingt-deux
ans. L'homme, Renaud, est grand et
melancolique, et est un peu plus vieux
que sa femme. lis parlent tout bas
comme s'ils etaient seuls au monde.
Renaud: Julie, tu ne regrettes pas
notre mariage? Tu aurais pu etre plus
heureuse avec un autre — .
Julie: Eh bien, Renaud! De quoi
parles-tu? Je ne serais pas ici, si je ne
Renaud : Je te ferai si heureuse quand
nous retournerons a Paris. — Mais, dan-
sons, Julie? C'est un bon orchestre.

un reve! Us oublient le salon, les fau
teuils verts, les hommes, et les f emmes — .

leurs esprits, et ils pensent a ce qu'ils
feront ensemble a New York et a Paris
Mais la nuit est fraiche et Julie fri-
sonne. Elle leve son manteau du rail et
ils s'en vont. Le manteau a cache une
ceinture de sauvetage, et quand Julie

L'AFFAIRE DE LA PIPE
Le vieillard Prudhomme a perdu sa
pipe! Oh, quelle dommage! Oh, c'etait
trop fort! Oui, la grande pipe, sa pipe
favorite, elle avait disparu. Ou etait-
elle? Sans sa pipe le vieux Prudhomme
etait ruine. Cette pipe etait son amie,
son compagnon de vieillesse. En ete et
aussi en hiver i'l s'asseyait et fumait
sur son seuil ou a son atre, content,
lan^ant des bouffees odoriferantes. Mais
maintenant, il etait seul, il lui fallait
trouver ce compagnon vite, tout de suite
ou il deviendrait fou.
Mais le pauvre Prudhomme n'etait
pas capable de la chercher tout seul.
Son rhumatisme le troublait continuel-
lement. Le bon chalumeau seulement
etait capable de rapetisser la peine et
maintenant il ne l'avait pas. Peut-etre
le petit Dominique, son neveu, l'assiste-
rait a la trouver. Ah, oui, Dominique, le
petit garcon ! C'etait la la reponse. Oui,
Dominique etait si bon, si obligeant,
M. Prudhomme s'ecria doucement
d'abord, "Dominique, Dominique," alors
plus fort. "Venez, Dominique, s'il vous
plait." Dominique, cependant, n'est pas
venu. II faut que le pauvre vieillard
aille le chercher. Prudhomme s'est leve
peniblement, boitant a la salle voisine.
La etait Dominique, le petit, sa figure
defiguree avec agonie. tissee avec stu-
peur. La fumee emplissait l'air. Dans
la bouche etait la pipe archivieille.
M. Prudhomme, hebete, mais heureux
a la decouverte, a dit, "Eh, Dominique,
moi, j'ai trouve ma pipe, mais vous,
vous avez trouve le demon interieur."

LES SENTIMENTS D'UN
La Place de la Concorde. Un vieil
homme se promene lentement. C'est
Jerome Trevant, vendeur de pain. Re-
gardant dans son panier, il soupire.
Jercme — "Ah! Quels jours tristes
pour les Francais! Et quels pains mis-
erables que je dois vendre! Pas fait
avec la farine comme aux bons vieux
jours. Mais le pain n'est pas la seule
chose qui ait change avec cette domi-
nation allemande. Paris a change; tout
a change. Les rues resonnent avec les
bottes des Nazis. Comme ils sont gal-
ants ces jours-ci ! Offrant de porter mon
panier et m'assistant a traverser la rue.
Mais ils ne peuvent pas nous duper a
nous isoumettre ! Nous avons trop endure
de ces voleurs pour oublier facilement!"
Soupirant encore, le vieux vendeur
de pain, sa tete baisse en meditation,
traverse pres de l'Arche et marche vers
le soleil couchant mourant.

A L'ECOLE EN ANGLETERRE
Je vais decrire l'ecole ou j'ai pour-
suivi mes etudes en Angleterre pendant
C'est une plus petite ecole que cette
ecole-ci, avec seulement trois cents
eleves. Des evacuees de Londres ven-
aient la pour la duree de la guerre, et
une autre ecole, l'ecole William Ellis,
pour les garccns de Londres, employ-
aient nos batiments rapres-midi.
Les eleves commencent quand ils ont
onze ou douze ans, et ils sortent quand
ils ont dix-sept ou dix-huit ans, comme
ici. Nous avons deux batiments: le
batiment ancien s'eleve ou la mairie
s'elevait audouziemeet treizieme siecles,
et le batiment nouveau, qui contient les
laboratoires et quelques salles de classes.
La grande salle aussi est dans ce bati-
ment, et la nous avons un petit service
chaque matin, et aussi des spectacles de
Shakespeare et toutes les fonctions de
Nous portons un uniforme, les filles
portent une tunique bleue, une blouse
blanche, et une cravate. Les garcons
portent un habit bleu, des pantalons
gris et une cravate. L'ete, les filles et
les garcons de la sixieme forme, de dix-
sept ans portent des chapeaux de paille,
et si les filles les portent dans une autre
ville ou on ne nous connait pas, les gens
nous regardent avec curiosite et nous
ne l'aimons pas. Nous portons une
jaquette rayee en ete aussi.
II y a quatre "maisons" a l'ecole qui
sont nominees apres les saints protec-
tees des lies brittaniques, et toutes les
notes que nous obtenons pendant 1' an-
nee sont additionnees au bout de
l'annee, et la maison avec la plupart des
notes gagnent un bouclier d'argent
pour la duree de l'annee prochaine.
Chaque maison essaie de garder ce
trophee parce qu'il est le plus haut prix
qu'une maison puisse obtenir. II y a
plusieurs autres trophees pour gagner,
les gobelets pour les jeux, pour nager,
pour le jeu de crosse, pour le football,
pour le criquet, et deux autres pour
Victor Ludorum et Victoria Ludorum.
Ces prix sont pour le gargon et la fille
qui obtiennent les meilleures notes pour
sa maison le jour des jeux.
Nous avons de beaux jar dins autour
de l'ecole, qui sont nommes "Les Cedres",
et naturellement. il y a des cedres
dans le jardin. Nous avons aussi une
piscine et deux jeux de paumes. Pres de
1' ecole nous avons un beau champ de
jeu, et il est un des meilleurs pour
plusieurs milles autour de nous. Nous
sommes fieres le notre ecole et du champ.

The "L" means more than "labor,"
And "a" means "amarus,"
"T" stands for such "tormentum",

The opera "Martha",
by Von Flotow, was
very beautifully pre-
sented by students of
the Plymouth Senior
High School. With
Walter Corrow as the
gentle and sincere
Lionel, William Lamborghini as the
amusing and boisterous Plunket, Faith
Millman as the sweet and shy Martha,
Marjorie Neal as the happy Nancy,
Allan Burgess as the stern Sheriff of
Richmond, and Loring Belcher with his
highly amusing interpretation of the
blundering Tristan, the principals
proved to be well cast.
Generous credit belongs to the pupils
and teachers who worked on ticket sales,
properties, costumes, and stage settings,
but it was the fine cooperation of all con-
cerned in this production which made it
a finished and colorful performance.

The sextet, accompanied by Miss Bea-
trice Hunt, attended the New London
Festival of Music. They left Plymouth
early in the morning and arrived at their
destination in the early afternoon.
Most of the five days were spent in
hard practice with the many other mus-
ical groups which attended the festival
from many towns and cities all over the
United States. They also had the oppor-
tunity to visit the Coast Guard Station
in New London. Saturday evening,
March 15, the combined groups gave a
very successful concert followed by a
grand ball. Besides making many new
friends, the sextet gained much through
this musical experience.
WITH the newly-appointed coach, Mr.
John Walker, and assistant coach
Romano at the helm, Plymouth High
opened its 1940 season against Hingham
and registered victory number one at
the expense of the Trojans. The first
victory was one of the seven piled up by
Plymouth's gridiron stars. They suf-
fered two setbacks, one of which was
hard to lose. That was when Plymouth
played in Abington and the two teams
were deadlocked for the first half. How-
ever, late in the third quarter Abington
recovered a fumble on Plymouth's two-
yard stripe. It was then only a matter
of McPhelmy driving over his right
guard for the touchdown. This was the
only score of the game, and Abington
finished on top by a 6 — count.
Plymouth's grid stars on the follow-
ing Saturday stopped Rockland's un-
certain football machine by a 13 —
count and registered victory number
The next game played was that be-
tween Plymouth and its newly-estab-
lished football connection, Attleboro.
Plymouth won this hard-fought game by
a 13 — score. The two touchdowns
came in the second and third periods as
the result of passes. The first score,
late in the second period, was the cul-
mination of a 78 yard sustained drive,
in which Plymouth in just four passes
and four rushes reached pay dirt.
Bernardo, Benati, and Strassel set up
this touchdown with Bernardo and Ben-
ati throwing them and Strassel on the
receiving end. Silvio Adamo scored the
second touchdown on a reverse play,
taking the lateral from Captain Stevens
in close formation. This came early in
the third period after Bernardo had in-
tercepted an Attleboro pass on the At-
tleboro 28 yard line. Benati then threw
a pass, Bernardo received it, and the 138
pound back was downed on the Jeweler's
three-yard stripe. Bernardo was hurt
on the play, and was forced to leave the
game. He was replaced by Adamo who
went over for Plymouth's second touch-
down after two more plays.
On the following Saturday, Plymouth
scored its fourth victory of the season
by winning a victory over Bridgewater
by a 14 — 7 score. Bernardo's passing
and Benati's power driving were two
reasons for the Plymouth scores. Ben-
ati, in both instances, booted between
the uprights with Bernardo holding.
Bridgewater scored on a lateral to Dame
on Bridgewater's 30 yard stripe and he
raced 65 yards up the field, being
downed just 5 yards short of a score.
In the third period, a pass from Zion
scored for the stubborn Bridgewater
A doubtful Middleboro team went
down fighting the next Saturday at
Middleboro. The Orange and Black
scored a touchdown in the third period
to throw a scare into the Plymouth boys
who had 12 points chalked up, but the
game ended with Plymouth the victor
In a downpour of rain the following
week, Plymouth and Whitman fought
their forty-sixth annual classic and
Plymouth won its fifth straight victory
from the Red and Black with Bernardo
and Benati doing all the scoring to give
Plymouth a 13 — win.
Weymouth High's gridiron champs
kept their slate clean when they invaded
and completely dominated the play to
defeat Plymouth 34—7. Cavallo, Del-
orey, and Wheeler were the main scor-
ing factors for Weymouth. Benati, not
at all happy about the score, passed and
rushed his way to Weymouth's four-
yard line and then plunged over for
Plymouth's lone touchdown.
The final game of the season found
Plymouth making good its chances to
even the series with a newcomer, Barn-
stable, by defeating the Cape Codders
25 — 6 to end a successful grid season.
Barnstable was stopped cold in the last
two periods when Plymouth rolled up a
score which gave Coaches Walker and
Romano something to talk about. This
game also climaxed the high school
football career of Idore Benati, Adelino
Bernardo, Martin McAuley, Harold
Strassel, Edward Ribeiro, and Captain
Dean Stevens, who graduate this year.

A PASSING ATTACK
piRST of all, a tribute to the second
team. The varsity agrees that the
subs provided stiff opposition during
scrimmage practices. Teddy Martin,
second-string quarterback, injured his
leg during one of these sessions.
The boys haven't forgiven the referee
of the Middleboro game for the perfect
block on Eddie Ribeiro who was chasing
a Middleboro back who had completed
a pass. The back scored a touchdown as
Ribeiro, the only obstacle in his way, was
taken out by the referee — unintention-
ally, of course.
At Nantucket where the Plymouth
third-stringers were badly beaten by the
powerful Nantucket varsity, the Bar-
bieri brothers were so eager that, in the
course of the game, the boys growled at
their opposition. Ever since that game,
the boys have been appropriately named
the "Growler Brothers."
When some player missed a pass or
failed to carry out an assignment, Coach
Walker usually cried, "Get a gun!" or
When Coach Romano threw a bad
pass, he explained, "Wait till I throw a
few more. I haven't warmed up enough."
One day Danny Sullivan fell right in-
to a mud puddle as he was running out
for a pass. Loring Belcher received a
magnificent black eye during a second
team game. When Bliss hit the tackling
dummy, he recoiled beautifully.
The boys on the squad, as well as the
coaches, agree that they have had a fine
time this season. All seniors regret they
cannot play football next year, but wish
next year's squad the best of luck.

GET THAT BALL
ANOTHER year of basketball has
passed, and the season of '40 — '41 is
now a memory. However, the players
will not easily forget some of the games
played. Although the hoop team of
P. H. S. lost six games, it also defeated
eight teams to earn a percentage of .600,
which is nothing to be ashamed of con-
sidering the calibre of the teams that
Plymouth High must compete against.
To start the season, the Plymouth
hoopsters journeyed to Abington, and
before a capacity crowd drubbed last
year's champions to the tune of 37 — 15.
The Plymouth boys shared fairly equally
in the scoring, but the speed of Captain
Bernardo and the scoring of Arthur
Pederzani, who caged six field goals
that were magnificent, were outstand-
The second game at Hingham was a
thriller from start to finish, but Plym-
out High ended on the short end of a
31 — 28 score. The game was decided in
the last minute of play after Plvmouth
had tied the score at 28—28.
The third game at Rockland brought
together two great rivals in basketball.
Rockland High, previously rated as the
best schoolboy team in the district, was

The Rockland players went down glori-

manship. Captain Bernardo played the
greatest game of his high school career
by caging 13 points and by setting up
East Bridgewater invaded Plymouth

On the following Tuesday, Plymouth

pulsed to the tune of 27 — 18. This game
also was decided in the last quarter.
Captain Bernardo and Arthur Peder-

The night following the East Bridge-
water tilt, Plymouth encountered a stub-
born North Attleboro team, and, after a
rough encounter which put Adelino
Bernardo and Vito Brigida on the bench
on fouls, Plymouth registered a one-
point triumph, 30 — 29.
Behind the shooting of Pederzani and
Bernardo, Plymouth made it victory
number five at the expense of a fast-
breaking Middleboro team, the final
score being 35 — 20.
The work of Wilbert Cingolani and
Arthur Pederzani helped bring Plym-

This same Bridgewater team revenged
itself by walking over Plymouth on its

The following Friday North Attle-
boro traveled to Plymouth, only to go
back disappointed at a 35 — 23 setback.
Then Plymouth High lost all the pep
it possessed in the North Attleboro clash,
and dropped a 35 — 27 thriller to Abing-
ton. Again Bernardo and Pederzani
caged 23 of the 27 points scored.
The next game was eagerly awaited,
for the Plymouth hoopsters were out to
avenge the three-point defeat handed to
them by Hingham for Plymouth's first
setback. The contest was closely fought
all the way, but Plymouth managed to
hold on to a one-point lead to even the
count with Hingham for the year. The
final score was 39 — 38.
Rockland made its Plymouth debut by
copping a well-earned 38 — 32 victory
from an in-and-out Plymouth basketball
Plymouth High started off on the
right foot in the Brockton Tournament
by drubbing a slow-moving Randolph

nip and tuck affair, emerged the winner

period — the final score being 42 — 41.
Captain Bernardo and Arthur Pederzani
displayed their usual good form and
scored 37 of the 41 points for Plymouth.

We're the class that's hard to beat
On gridiron, quiz, or in the street;
We may not pass on every test,
Yet we're still up there with the rest.
In P. H. S. we all excel,
And we don't lag upon the bell ;
Down corridor we madly tear,
You see for speed we have a flair.
In sports, you say, there's been small
For any sophomore yet this year,
But just you wait a little while
And we'll be best in any trial.
Our leader is a noble man
By name of William Jackson Lam —
To him and his we do accord
The job of representing Ford.
Kearsley comes from Manomet,
And he's our good vice-president :
He owns a car — nine years it's run,
Like all old Fords, its time is done.
Our secretary played the 'cello,
Its tones were far from sweet and
But now o'er keyboard "Jonesie" roams
Evoking even weirder tones.
Now at our till is Bouncing Ben,
For surplus coin he has a yen —
Although our books he'd gladly run,
Our assets now are just plain none.
In summing up you can't deny
We sophomores hit an all-time high:
Also by now you all must see
This so-called poem's a fallacy.
— By Two Sophomores
Helen Uhrlme - 6oak<
W/ITH a clash of sticks and at the ex-
pense of many bruised shins, the
girls of Plymouth High ushered in a new
field hockey season in which there were
many thrilling games frequently ending
in ties. This year the team was com-
posed entirely of seniors, who had
worked patiently through their high
school years toward the time when they
would be worthy of a place on the team.
One of the most important positions
on the the team is that of goal tender,
for she must assume the responsibility
of saving the team from any error on the
part of the defense. To Helen Whiting
goes the credit for developing into one
of the finest players in that position. For
that matter, all the girls filled their
positions gallantly and effectively, for at
the close of the season they had experi-
enced defeat only twice.
The games were exciting and hard-
fought, particularly those which were
played with Scituate and Middleboro,
who admittedly had very good teams this
year. The team, led by a most efficient
captain, Dorothy Morton, deserves
praise for its good sportsmanship and
spirit, even when defeat was imminent.
It is interesting to note that Scituate
had an undefeated, untied record until
its team arrived in Plymouth for the
second annual clash. It proved to be one
of the most hard-fought games of the
season, in which Plymouth marred its
opponent's record by emerging with a
tie score of one to one.
By our coach, Mrs. Beatrice Garvin,
the seniors will always be remembered
as the famous "tie team", for it tied
four of the seven games. However, the
record shows that the season can be
fairly described as successful. To the
girls who will wear the blue tunics next
October the girls of 1941 wish the best
of luck and a season that they may long

the alumnae was cancelled because of

NEW BASKETBALL PROGRAM
The Plymouth High
girls have enjoyed a
basketball program for
some fifteen years.
as an intra-mural pro-
gram, a squad of
twenty players soon
represented the school
games. Practising at Memorial Hall and
the Armory, the girls passed through
cycles of undefeated seasons and
through other winters of competition
that meant building back to more suc-
cessful schedules. This group grew to
the point where first and second varsity
as well as class games were played by
the forty girls who reported. When the
new building became our playing field,
a problem of ninety girls and three prac-
tice days meant the introduction of a
modern program. To all interested girls
is extended the opportunity for weekly
technique and practice games, and then
the playing in class groups among their
own school squads. That those of su-
Cat : Having nine lives, I will die nine
Frog: That's nothing. I croak every
perior ability should not lose the oppor-
tunity of meeting girls of other schools,
observing their plays and spirit, an invi-
tation is extended to the Alumnae and
other schools to come to the Plymouth
gymnasium for Play Day competition.
The day is so named to designate it as
an effort to promote all the worthwhile
points of competition, and this year
girls came from Middleboro, Hing-
ham, and Bourne.
A team of eight players is selected
from each class squad and an inter-
school game afternoon finds seventy
girls playing in both gymnasiums —
happy at seeing the results of their own
play improvement, but quick to ac-
knowledge superiority in their oppon-
ents. When undergraduate squads are
fortunate enough to win many of their
games, they are immediately challenged
by the necessity of seeing to it that they
retain their speed and skill in order to
succeed against the same opponents the
next year. The afternoon ends with
school cheers and refreshments, the
visiting team leaving with friendly
thanks and promises to return another
